and values that increasingly in a polarized environment makes it difficult for thome vote for scott brown and others. the problem with the republicans they're based, ideologically driven voters, tea party folks but part of the republican base is open for democrats then democratic base is voting for republicans, i believe. i'm sure we can chew this over. let me give you an example. let me give you an example. heidi hide camp -- hidecamp, terrific candidate in north dakota. mitt romney won north dakota by 20, 21 points. heidi was able to overcome that. it's true that she -- the president won north dakota slightly less then mid-romney won north dakota slightly less then the president won massachusetts. but i think the republican coalition includes kind of a soft, swing voters who is inclined to vote republican but more willing to vote for democrats. jim mathisson surviving in utah is amazing. amazing. john barrio in georgia, yes, the republicans candidate against him was horrendous. when the last time you heard a challenger refused to debate the incumbent?

: erroll, the anxiety level is growing and it grows day by day. how is the environment changing because of all of this. >> the more far-sighted politicians see this coming. the mayor was out not that long ago, and it was not an announceed doctor it was not a schedule. he was just touring some of the areas. we just happened to have a camera there and we caught him being cussed out by a middle aged white guy a middle aged black woman they looked like they were from different opportunities. and they all came together to cuss him out. this is what people can't quite get to, unlike 9/11 where everybody knew, everybody understood it, whole communities have been wiped out. chose kinds of numbers that you're talking about people, all of their neighbors, where they shop, all gone. and the city seems to be functioning, the other part of the city, the celebrities in manhattan. they're still throwing their costume balls and hanging out at the clubs. the politicians sense that there is going to be an ugly response. >> eliot: not to relive the marathon decision, but for everybody who wanted life to g
this on the eve of an election. again, i'm obviously not positing some huge conspiracy. in our environment, in our hyperpartisan environment, most people in a situation like this seeing any possibility for political advantage would have raced to expose something like this, right? general petraeus was confronted about this two weeks ago, right? two weeks before the election. chose -- ultimately decided to resign but didn't decide to resign at that moment. was there part of the reason he did not decide to resign immediately upon being confronted on this, he knew it would be embarrassing for the administration on the eve of an election? that's a reasonable inference. there's so much we don't know because so many people individually have not spoken publicly about the chain of events and their motivations in terms of keeping quiet at a moment of maximum political volatility. >> just to clarify because i've raised a lot of questions here, my biggest concern isn't what happened at the end. i understand there are a lot of conservatives that are going to be thinking that this was -- >> cover-up. >> benghaz

operative working in a democratic environment put together a memo. he explained how he was going to make the democrat ectexas political establishment a republican electoral gold mine, which he succeeded. in that memo, he wrote the words, when things are going badly, attack, attack, attack. that has always his motif. in this case, things went very, very badly, involving many very wealthy, very influential people, and his reaction is just attack the other guy. >> let me ask you this quickly. you've written two books, you know it very well d this tarnish the brand of karl rove? is this the beginning of the end of karl rover? >> it is not in my estimation the end of karl rove. remember in 2004 he was the hero, the architect who lifted george bush for reelection in difficult situation, but by 2006 he was the goat when the democrats came back. he's been in this position before when people say he's finished. anyone who thinks that karl rove is finished, his days are on the floor, he is a has been, are people, whether republican enemies or democratic opponents, are wishing for something that not

green, all things relating to the environment and our energy policy how optimistic are you that we're going to find a solution to this in the coming years, which is to say the next four? >> you know, in hearing the president speak and reading -- it's i guess confused as an observer and i love listening to you but trying to parse out what it means because what it goes back to for me, in the election, when politicians were separating ow the economy from birth control i was like, no, it's the same. when we hear, we have to see what's economically sound, and when we talk about climate change and energy, didn't i just hear, and don't we think the future is green jobs and what that means? so kind of stepping back, makes me feel frustrated because i feel like isn't that the direction we need to be going in and how do we convince americans that, yeah, you know what, prices at pump have to go up if we want to have them not? >> you can ask somebody who has lost a business in coney island or in the rockaways if this is about jobs and growth. >> right. >> there are people who are going to take
one to make, but we have been becoming a much more diverse nation. in that kind of environment, you cannot have a base that shrinks and expect for your party to expand its influence. it doesn't make any mathematical sense. i think eventually those folk who want there to be a republican party are going to have to make some adjustments along some of these demographic and identity lines we have been talking about. >> maybe dr. james peterson and julian epstein could explain this to the republican party. in the meantime, gentlemen, thank you very much indeed. next, oh, where have you gone allen west? a nation turns its lonely eye to you. stay with us. >> so keith ellison is a communist. >> soledad, you know something -- >> a communist? >> i'm talking about the fact -- >> tammy baldwin is a communist. >> you can call it whatever you want. >> but i want to know what you're calling it. >> i'm talking about their beliefs. i'm calling it this. communist, progressive, marxist, socialist. >>> time for the "your business" entrepreneur of the week. kathleen and susan are encouraging customers to
not be a decision made exclusively by him? >> i think not. he grew up in an environment in the military where one of the first things you learn is that bad news doesn't get any better with age. the best thing you can do is tell the boss bad news as soon as it happens or as soon as possible after it happens, because it can't be fixed later the older it gets. the worse it gets the noisier it gets and the -- and eventually the inevitable is going to happen anyway. it's best to cut sooner rather than later if if you really love the country and really think what you're doing is important. even if you're pressured by the white house, the best thing to do is to get out early. >> and quickly because just one minute leicht. andrea said he's expected to testify before the cia. this investigation with benghazi do you see any parallels, anything that might also have factored in with na resignation? >> well of course there's a link. i think at some juncture if he told the truth he would say he didn't have as much to do when on the ground what went on on the ground as people think. a
policy issue on the table. this environment we're in. we're inside the capital here. there's not much that happens in washington today because of the partisan fighting. is there room after this agenda where we just spent $6 tpwhl a campaign beating each other's brains out and coming up with the same congress, president and senate in coming one curing als mimers or any other agenda? we start with something from a partisan perspective. >> let me put this on my wish list. >> the now that's a form lose because that's what understand 2010. 2010 set up 2012, that is the extremism of the tea party, the polarization set up the 2012 election so that we have a situation where republicans have won a -- the most votes in only one national election since 1992. they are not a viblee national party. they can't elect presidents of the united states. if their strategy for 2014, which is majority leader, or the republican leader in the senate seemed to say, then we're not going to get there. they're going to minimize the interpretation of this election. if youing focus on this election, it is a landsli
to your population is, you have to manage expectations of these kinds of environments because the frustration of your population outweighs the progress, then it's difficult to be able to show that there is something that has actually been done to say that this is what we have accomplished a bad thing that is the kind of thing. >> time may not be on the side. very quickly. >> well, he talked about the problem with sequencing. we mentioned in our report. the curate catch-22 and securities sector reform is you need democracy, and you need security sector reform for democracy. how to manage this paradox to let this catch-22 is a central question. in that regard you cannot achieve everything quickly, and if you go after the most entrenched forces you will be tremendous resistance. we saw that in tunisia. at one of the things i . out that think is very much true for both countries and to some extent for libya, even though we have the absence of the state, is to push the democracy process forward. in institutional and constitutional process because you cannot move and the deeper issu
and values that increasingly in a polarized environment makes it difficult for them to vote for scott brown and heather wilson. the problem with the republicans -- they have some very ideologically driven voters, but part of the republican base is more open to voting for democrats than the democratic base is to vote for republicans, i believe. that even example. -- let me give you an example. heidi is a terrific candidate in north dakota. mitt romney one north dakota by 21. and i was able to overcome that. -- and heidi was able to overcome that. it is true that the president won north dakota slightly less than -- mitt romney won north dakota at slightly less than the president won massachusetts. but the republican coalition includes kind of a soft swing voter that is inclined to vote republican, but as more willing to vote for democrats. john barrow in georgia, the republican candidate was horrendous. a challenger refused to debate the incumbent. [laughter] i didn't say it was a bad decision, i just said it says something about the challenger. i think this is an additional problem. it is ea
the way we govern our country. it is a good, therapeutic way to look in a nonhostile environment as to where we need to go with the country. >> john: the fact it is a nonhostile environment means it won't be covered on most cable news outlets. i'm looking over the roster of speakers. of course you're there as well as james carvel and mary madeline. i guess their merge is a model for this kind of event. you have trent lott and ted strickland, jonathan capehart and another married couple, avalon and hoover. it seems like a really, really inspiring roster of people. so i guess let me ask you why did things turn out the way they did last week on election day? >> you know, first of all, it was close but i think that -- you know, most of the pundits got it right. that is i think the people sense that the economy was getting better while slowly things were kind of turning in the right direction. and i think they were willing to give the president the benefit of the doubt under those circumstances. i also think that the
. >> jim put out serious policy issue on the table. this is a partisan, you know, environment that we're in. we're inside the u.s. capital here, step from the capitol here inside the committee room. there's not much that happened in washington today because of the bart disan fighting. it there there room after of the agenda we spend $6 billion in a campaign beating each other's brains out and came up with the same president, congress, and senate four serious bipartisan efforts on curing diseases like alzheimer's or any other short of agenda. we start somebody from a partisan perspective. , ralph. [laughter] >> well, let me put it on the wish list. part of this i'm sure the partisan comment. the i looked at ralph's reaction to this, he said if we look at what the pattern of the vote in 2010 election that is replicated to stwowrt, then we will then, you know, we can have a big push back against the democrats. okay. the now that is a formula, that's what happened in 2010. 2010 set up 2012. that is the extremism of the polarization that set up the 2012 election. we have a situation where republ
. >> so jim has just put a serious policy issue on the table. this is a partisan, you know, environment that we're in. we're inside the u.s. capitol here, or steps from the capitol inside a committee room. there's not much that happens in the washington today because of the partisan fighting. um, is there room after this agenda where we just spent $6 billion in a campaign beating each other's brains out and came up with the same president, the same congress and the same senate for serious, bipartisan efforts on curing diseases like alzheimer's or any other short of agenda? ralph or stan, we start with somebody from a partisan perspective. >> well, let me put the this on my wish list. i'm sure this seems like it's going to be a partisan comment. the -- i looked at ralph's reaction to this, um, where he said that if we look at what the pattern of who votes in the 2010 election, if that is replicated in 2014, um, then we will, then we can have a big pushback against the democrats, okay? the -- now, that's a formula, because that's what happened in 2010. 2010 set up 2012. that is, the extre
there was a lot that changed tuesday. that environment is somewhat reflected in the statement that speaker boehner made yesterday afternoon. i was told about comments he made on a conference call about how they had to change the way they operate. you had a very significant victory by the president who campaigned on the issue of fiscal responsibility. is there going to be a change in tax rates? , 60% favored that nationwide. most wanted it on people over $250,000 a year. they wanted 25 of 30 open senate seats. i think they are coming back with a lot of wind in their sails, like the last session of congress or the resurgent republican majority came back with something of a mandate. it is hard for them to argue that there is much of that mandate. they lost seven seats. i think they had a jury mandate but not a mandate. they did well. they perhaps maintain their majority because of the way they were able to draw districts last time. virginia went three points for the president. a very careful effort to draw those lines. it is hard to claim to have the public behind you because you have drawn the line
is different about this environment is that the bush tax rate will expire. we will revert to the rates under clinton for everyone unless president obama signed an extension. after this campaign, that would be pretty shocking. he ran explicitly but as a candidate to say that he will raise taxes on the top. unless he suddenly decides that, i didn't mean it, it does not really matter all that much what house speaker thinks. the tax cut will expire unless obama is willing to extend it. that changes the whole dynamic. virtually all of the republicans have signed the grover norquist pledge to not raise tax rates. if the tax cuts expire at the end of the year and then in january you extended for 97% of americans, the new never voted to raise tax rates. your only cutting taxes. it is possible for something like that -- when the speaker said that yesterday, it was not really reflecting the world that he now lives in. unless the president is willing to extend the tax cuts, they will not be extended. >> i have a question for you. to what extent will there be a major -- the republican party against the
